California Consortium for Independent Study

The California Consortium for Independent Study (CCIS) is a voluntary membership organization comprised of teachers, administrators, and counselors who serve independent learners in California’s public school system. As a consortium, we represent over 300 independent study schools and programs across the state which provide preschool through adult educational programs to over two-hundred thousand learners.

Important Update on the Trailer Bill

We’re working on it…

The most current Trailer Bill Language may have an impact on Independent Study delivery, Master Agreement language, and Board Policy for the coming school year.

Please be aware that the CCIS Board has been working closely with our lobbyists to influence this language before it is approved. We expect updates to be coming very soon and we will share them with you. We may have a call to action as our collective voice will undoubtedly be stronger. Please review the TBL and watch for our updates or requests.
